Anette Askvik (NO) – “Birdsong”

There’s a touch of Björk in the vocal mannerisms of Norwegian singer/songwriter Anette Askvik, but what dominates is tonality and lyrical expression that reminds me of the cult Canadian songstress Jane Siberry. It’s something to do with her ability to fold modern electronic elements into her ostensibly folk-based melodies and metaphorical lyrics about being a strong and capable bird. It’s the kind of song you want to curl up with on a chilly day like this.
